Jim White

A Funny Little Cross to Bear

2009-03-09

Jim White's new EP, A Funny Little Cross to Bear, is a compilation of life stories collected through his many careers, set to a mellow blend of folk and rock music. In this live album, Jim is backed up by guitarist Pat Hargon and vocalist Fiona McBain. The album is marked by Jim's commentary on his work and life in between songs. A Funny Little Cross to Bear contrasts Jim White as a performer to Jim White as a songwriter.- Intern Matt
